      Nice hotel near French Quarter

      It was a short 2 block walk form Bourbon Street in the French Quarter and from there an easy walk to other sites in the area. Only reason I did not give 5 stars is because sitting/reading chair in the room was not very comfortable to sit and read. Everything else very nice about the hotel.

      Hampton Inn

      from

      My wife and I stayed at the Hampton Inn on Carondelet Street for four nights. The hotel is two blocks from Bourbon Street off of Canal Street. The room was spacious and well keep. Liked the walk in shower.

      The staff was friendly and helpful. We did eat at two of the restaurants the hotel recomended. The "Red Fish Grill" and the "Acme Oyster Bar". The Red Fish Grill was OK, but I didn't like the Sweet Potato Cat Fish. My wife got the Almond Crusted Red Fish and it was OK.

      The prices were high for what we got, and that is true for a lot of the restaurants their. The Acme Oyster bar was not good! I got a Shrimp Po Boy sandish and it was the worst I ever had! My wife got a "Chicken Po Boy" and it wasn't good either! The prices are reasonable, but the food is bad!!

      Best Stay

      from

      My wife and I stayed at the Hampton Inn on Carondelet Street. This is by far one of the best facilities one can expect. Room was excellent.

      High ceilings, spacious floor plan and excellent beds. Also large bath and dressing areas. Food was absolutely impeccable. I wish I were there now. I would not plan to stay anywhere else.

      Great Location

      from

      This hotel is a couple of blocks from Bourbon Street, right off Canal.

      It is easy to catch the trolley to go to the Riverwalk or you can walk to Harrahs. We found this hotel clean and the staff very helpful. The rooms are large and the beds are comfortable. If you are looking for a good internet connection though in which to conduct business, they are lacking in this department. Also, we ordered a refrigerator and one never became available. Be sure and eat at the Red Fish Grill on Bourbon. The food is fantastic!! The slots at Harrahs are not good. If you want to gamble, take a ride to Biloxi. Haven't been to NO French Quarter in a long time and was disappointed to find it dirty and stinky.

      Stick with a Hampton

      from

      As usual Hampton came through with an immaculate hotel, in a great location, and a fantastic price. Bourbon street only a 5 minute walk.

      Our room was great and quite large. My only complaint would be the same as many N.O hotels, and that is they hold your car captive when you arrive and expect to be tipped every time you need something you forgot out of it. I have no idea where our car even was. Plus they want a 30 minute norice if you need anything from the car. The breakfast was really good, and everything was well placed, and convienent. I would stay there again.

      Awesome Hotel w/ a Super Staff

      from

      What a wonderful experience with the Hampton Inn. This past weekend July 25-28th my husband and I arrived to the French Quarter only to find out the 5 star Hotel we reserved online, the St. Louis turned out to be a dump, we went over to the Hampton and they were more than obliged to accomodate us. They gave us a great room that was clean and crisp. The maid service was wonderful and polite. The continetal breakfast was the best I have ever been too, with waffles, pastries, you name it, they had it. BUt I have to say, if it was not for the front desk staff, Aimee & Nailea, we would of had an awful time in New Orleans, but they di what ever it took to get us into a nice room and at a discount too. Thanks to them we had a wonderful time in New Orleans after the dreaded Hotel Hell at the St. Louis.

      Best Bed Ever

      from

      My wife and I spent four nights in New Orleans in July 03. We chose the Hampton Inn, French Quarter, based on Tripadvisor reviews, location and price. We have never been more satisfied with a hotel. The service was outstanding, the room was extremely clean, and the king bed was so comfortable we didn't want to get out of bed in the mornings. One of the fine bellmen took us into the employee lounge to get us a map, where we saw a large chart containing employees' names and merit stickers. The chart said: "caught being excellent." The rates were about $10 cheaper than the nearby Holiday Inn Express, and the Hampton guaranteed us a king bed and a non-smoking room. After we arrived we had to cut our trip a day short, and the Hotel graciously canceled our last night's reservation without a charge. Simply, the hotel was the highlight of our trip to New Orleans.

      Great Stay

      from

      Great Stay, great service, location is a brisk walk to the quarter but just a few blocks. Front Desk staff are very courteous and attentive.

      Rooms are very nice with tall ceilings. Would stay here again.

      Loved the Hampton Inn

      from

      Being in the Hotel trade (Both myself and my wife work in 5* complexes) I am very fussy where I rest my head at night. However, the Hampton Inn is a little gem in the heart of New Orleans. Our room was clean and spacious with good views of the city, my dealings with the staff was always met with a cheerfull smile, and nothing was too much trouble. An extra night would have been nice but unfortunately Orlando was calling. Give yourselves a treat head for the big easy.

      Hampton Inn Downtown New Orleans

      from

      My husband and I just returned from a long weekend in New Orleans. Since October is convention month in the city, I was unable to secure a reservation at the Wyndham Canal Place or the Marriott Downtown. After alot of research

      on other New Orleans hotels, I made a reservation at the Hampton Inn Downtown New Orleans. I called the hotel directly, and got a much better rate than their website, 800 number or Expedia, Travelocity, etc. $149 for a room was an exceptional rate for October!

      This hotel is in an excellent location! It is 2 blocks

      off Canal Street on the fringe of the Central Business District and the French Quarter. It is on Carondelet St., which turns into Bourbon Street on the other side of Canal St. We were in close walking distance of the French Quarter, the Riverfront, The French Market and also took the street car to the Garden District. The street car

      runs right in front of the hotel!

      The hotel itself is a renovated historical building and the rooms are large with high ceilings. The view is limited because it is across from other buildings. We had a great King room, but called the front desk to ask if there was another room with a better view than overlooking a roof top. We were immediately personally escorted by Rudy, the

      conceirge, to a bigger Deluxe King room in the corner of the building that looked out on Carondelet Street.

      Rudy sent me alot of good information in the mail before I even arrived in New Orleans after I made my reservation. He was very helpful in recommending local restaurants and interesting tours. And I mean, local cuisine, not "tourist trap" restaurants!

      I would definitely stay at this hotel again whenever I am in New Orleans!

      We finished out our stay in New Orleans with a nice walk through the French Quarter starting around 7 a.m. when everything was quiet and peaceful. We just walked the streets in areas we have not seen before including seeing the Lafitte's Blacksmith Shop one of New Orleans oldest structures used continuously as a bar. We also visited Cafe du Monde …

      Today we started off taking the Canal Streetcar and #84 bus to the lower 9th ward where the dyke broke and caused so much damage. It was revealing walking around the area seeing so many empty lots with foundations showing so you know homes were there. Also new homes and homes that have been fixed up all around. There was one area near the new dyke …

      Yes we did travel across country and visited a cemetery on our first full day in town. I had heard and read a bit about the cemeteries in New Orleans and knew there were any number of tours of them so I felt we needed to visit at least one. So today we decided to do things a little farther afield than the French Quarter. We took the Charles Street …

      Marge and I paid for the Faster to Fun option which gave us priority boarding and priority disembarking at the end of the trip. So the travelers who wanted to take their own bags off were first followed by Top Tier members of Carnival Club and us Faster to Fun folks. So we were off the ship, had our luggage and were checked in to the Hampton Inn by …
